Coward vs p*ssy? Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero are currently warring on Twitter

New, 48 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contenders Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero are currently yelling at each other on Twitter, after “Soldier of God” accused the ex-champ of refusing to fight him.

As expected, that didn’t sit well with Rockhold, who fired back with some hard data, which then prompted Romero to keep the dialogue going. No doubt reigning champion Michael Bisping is somewhere laughing his ass off.

Kinda bummed there were no Cuban mobs or burnt flags in that video.

Rockhold is currently ranked No. 3 in the division, exactly one spot behind Romero. Unfortunately, the part-time model hasn’t competed since coughing up his title to “The Count” in 2016 and pretty much eliminated himself from an immediate rematch by pissing off promotion president Dana White.

Romero, meanwhile, lost a five-round decision to Robert Whittaker earlier this month, coming up short in his quest for the interim title and giving Bisping a reprieve for the foreseeable future.

Sounds like Rockhold vs. Romero is the fight to make.
